Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop revealed the reason for the change in the starting lineup.
Doosan infielder Yang Seok-hwan started as the 7th hitter in the opening series against Jamsil Lotte on the 1st and 2nd. Yang Seok-hwan, who missed the Jamsil NC game on the 4th and 5th due to a bruise on his foot in the opening game on the 1st, came out as the 8th hitter in the NC game on the 6th and recorded his first home run of the season. The batting order continues to change: 6 times on the 7th and 8th, and 3 times on the 9th.
Regarding Yang Seok-hwan’s change in batting order on the 7th, manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “I judged the batting order that way because I took two games off. The batting order can change at any time depending on the condition. could be,” he said.
Yang Seok-hwan, who hit home runs in two consecutive games on the 7th, said after the game, “The batting order and player skill are the manager’s authority. I don’t have any special thoughts, but 6 times are better than 8 times, and the center batting line is better than 6 times. All players are the same. . I think I went down because I couldn’t hit it.
Hearing Yang Seok-hwan’s ‘commitment’ on the 8th, coach Lee smiled broadly and said firmly, “If you are a hitter, of course you want to be in the center of the batting line. .
Director Lee said, “I don’t decide alone, but the coaching staff thinks a lot about which batting order is suitable. There is no batting order that is not important. All positions are important. That’s why I’m not thinking about sticking.” However, No. 4 Jaehwan Kim is fixed.
It means that rather than simply changing the mood of an individual player, it determines the condition the player is in, the batting order he or she should play in, and draws a lineup for team victory. Coach Lee mentioned ‘changing mood’ one more time ahead of the game on the 8th, and it was the story of Jose Rojas, a foreign hitter who was missing from the starting lineup for the first time that day.
Coach Lee, who boldly excluded Rojas from the lineup, who was in a sluggish 1-for-17 after the opening home run, said,안전놀이터 “I won’t be able to say it myself when a few games are not good. I’m a foreigner and I’m in the center of the batting line, so I think I have to go to the game every day, but sometimes It is our role to pull back. When I was a player, I also had thoughts of wanting to go back if it was not good.” Rojas, who returned to the starting lineup on the 9th, picked up three walks.
Coach Lee, the ‘Legend’ who is the KBO’s best home run hitter and still holds the record for the most RBIs, runs scored and doubles in his career, knows the players’ moods and conditions more keenly than anyone else because he has experienced ups and downs during his long career as a player. Attention is focusing on whether coach Lee and coaches will lead the Doosan lineup to the best combination this year.
